#AerieREAL Love From Iskra: Goal Setting

Hey Aerie girls,

I wanted to talk about dreams and goal settings and share some ways I get creative and organised to help me achieve my ambitions.

The first thing to remember is that any dream you have is valid. We are encouraged as young children to be whatever we want when we grow up but as we move through the education system we are then told to choose a college course and pick a career that’s actually attainable…

I just want to tell you no matter what age you are or what you are currently doing we have the power to be and do anything. I recently trained with a 20 times undefeated boxing champ and she only started boxing at 29 years old! She was going through a divorce and had a 8 year old but found what she loved and was talented at and has never looked back!

So now I will share with you things that have helped me get where I am today.

First off I LOVE vision boarding.

My vision board is in my bedroom. I put pictures and quotes on it. Some are my dreams, some inspire me, and some remind me of people and moments that are special to me.

You don’t need rules to make a vision board and I love getting together with my besties and having a whole day of getting creative. I like to grab my fave magazines or images I find online and make it super colourful with crayons and pens.

You will just need a corkboard or even some cardboard you can add pictures and quotes too. Of course you can add other things too if you want, friendship bracelets, gig tickets, cards from your besties! Your board your rules!

So you put a picture of Times Square on your moodboard, what’s next? It’s not just gunna happen by staring at it lol! You’ve got to have a plan. Make your dream a goal, add a date or year when you want it happen, think about things you need to do to make this happen! I call this my POA… Plan Of Action.

A POA is great for bigger goals, which are longer term and require lots of actions. But for everyday things to do, I make lists on my cell phone. I group list items as things I need to do now and things I can do later. So I also keep the highest priority or the nearest deadline things at the top of the list.

The important thing is to find something that works for you. For me it is my vision board, POAs, and cell phone lists.

Don’t be afraid to have big dreams – they’re the best sort! Breaking them down into smaller steps and setting specific goals will make your dreams easier to achieve. You might find your your goals change over time but that’s OK, go for it! You’re still be super effective having dreams and getting things done! And don’t forget to help your besties have inspiring dreams, set goals, and have fun!

Excited to see your vision boards! Tag me @iskra and @aerie #AerieReal

Sending you so much love!
